Mananchira Square, Kozhikode
Categories: Nature & Parks
Mananchira Square, located at the heart of Kozhikode city, is constructed around the Mananchira tank. The huge tank (chira) was built by the last Zamorin King, Mana Vikrama, and is fed by a natural spring. The Square is managed by the corporation of Kozhikode.To visit Mananchira Square and other attractions in Kozhikode, use our Kozhikode tour planner.
The area around the tank has been partly converted into a park, and landscaped with trees, plants and lawns. There is also a musical fountain at the Square that attracts a lot of visitors. The arch at the entrance guarded by Tipu Sultan’s cannons, the ethnic buildings around the Square all help maintain its old-world charm. The fairly recent addition of a public library constructed in the traditional style, inside the maidan premises, merges well with the ambience of the place.
A bust of renowned Malayalam writer and Jnanpith award-winner, S. K. Pottekkad, is placed inside a traffic island close to the maidan. This is the starting point of the S. M. street.

The center of Calicut. The park is good for evening hangout. I use to came here every weekend when I was a child. Except in summer, it's a good place for hangout at evening. A problem is that there is no parking in here. If u came here on a car, u will be stuck with that.
Mananchira means the chira(pond) made by man. No one will belive such place exists unless they visit it. Calicut is a busy city same as kochin but few things make the difference one is mananchira. Mananchira a man made pond and a park surrounded by it. This place is the apt break for you after a stressfull day.The greenery in this place will give you a very soothing mood. As it is a public place it lacks a public toilet. Also the place dosent have a good snackbar or coolbar all you will get is the street sellers and hygiene is a concern. Families and peer groups gather every evening. In the inner side of the park you will find statues of famous malayalam novel characters.These sides are mostly occupied by lovers and couples as it is isolated from the other places. Couple of take away counters will definitely improve the place.
One of the beautiful place in calicut. Well suited for leisure. This place is located at the heart of the city and still delivers awesome greenery
